      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Recommended Posts

Is there a good way to purchase this ammo at a decent price? Anyone know of any places?

Thanks

The best I found last year was a 50 round box of Winchester 180 grain Full Metal jacket shells. The cost was 10.99. I bought 5 boxes or 250 rounds. I just cannot remember what local store I purchased them at. If it comes to me I will post. I dont think these are made anymore as it was a clearance.

Check out Sportsman guide as I believe they sell Hornady 200 grain 10mm shells fairly reasonable.

I bought some hunting loads from the Internet. Made in Texas - very nice bullet. Cost was about $20 for 50 shells. Do a serach for hunting 10mm bullets.

I hate the lack of variety out there. The Cabela's salesman told me that the gun is crap and I should just shoot a 9mm (said its got more power) and then told me that they do not make the 10mm anymore.

My bubby and I both own 10 mm glocks and we purchased a bulk qty. from DbleT and the practice loads were very inaccurate all over the place for some reason. But the carry/hunting loads seem to be alot better. Just something to keep in mind also.

T --

I get sick of those sales people too. They want to sell you the guy at first -- then you buy it and you can't find ammo and then they want to sell you a 9 mm and say your gun is junk. I bought the 10 mm because you can bring it deer hunting.

It is very upsetting.

I have the glock 20 (10 mm) and it has been very inaccurate. I don;t know why that is. I have used a 9 mm glock and I was very on-target.

bad ammo?.

I just recently got a G20 and went shooting with the American Eagle stuff. I couldn't hit the target to save my butt. Well I thought it was the gun or the ammo and was starting to regret the purchase. Well my brother in law shot it and it was dead on. Then to pour salt in the wound my wife shot it and didn't have a problem with it either. Well so much for blaming the ammo and the gun. Stupid wind.LOL It was my first time shooting a Glock and took a little work to get use to the Safe Action trigger. After a little time I got her dialed right in.

What are you currently shooting for ammo? I went with a speciality place from Texas for hunting loads. American Eagle and other "junk" shells do not work very well.

However, I have noticed that I must clean the 10 mm often as the buildup is very excessive.

You have a nice gun there - maybe buy a box of alternate shells or even handload them.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      if it ever comes down to those 2 choices for you, do the eye thing. Cant fish with you if yer dead.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.
